      [Thanks today is due to Toni Aurilio for the suggestion---which term you'll
      recognize when you see it---and to several other amazing women who have told
      me "things" relative to this topic. Thank you all!]

      Bud Light presents...


      {Real men of geeeeeene-yuss}

      Today we salute you, Mr. God's-Gift to All Running Women.

      {Mis-ter "Just-doooo-what-I-tellllll-you-to-dooooo and you'lllll be fine!"}

      Who knew that women could all improve their speed, endurance, stride-length,
      VO2-max, race times, personal records, recovery time, and possibly
      everything else in their lives---including love, family, relationships, even
      menstrual cycles and childbirth---just by listening to YOU?

      {"Whennnn I was yourrrrrrrr age, I could cycle-ev-ry-se-ven-weeks

      Surely, a running guru like you could only possibly become a vision of
      enlightenment just once in their lives, so they better be grateful, and take
      good notes. Because, after all---and after you always TELL them all,
      too---you, their hero, have already "been there, done that."

      {"I kneeeew howwwwwwwwwww to pace my-self!"}

      And you have proof! Home movies! Before your glomming-on group of
      worshipful sweeties can even begin worrying about their next ultra-long
      race, you invite them all over to your house, to watch "how you did it," and
      of course to take even better notes. In your wisdom, you know that watching
      *you* will be best for *them*.

      {"Let me stop here and reee-play the film, so yoooou can see thissss

      Never mind, of course, that all *that* took place in the late '70s or early
      '80s---before, according to some, trail running was even invented. What you
      now bequeath to your sometimes-snickering feminine fan club are lessons that
      only *your* one-and-only sterling performance on pavement at some local 10K
      race, since ignominiously renamed in your honor, could possibly teach young
      women about how to run a hundred miles in the forest.

      {"Never-mind-watch-ing that me-tal watch and those tube socks!"}

      So crack open an ice-cold Bud Light, Oh Mahatmas Gandhi, THE Running Guru of
      Hard-won Experience, and serve the rest of those cases in your fridge to
      your eager houseguests, because, really, *you* are an amazement to them all.
      None of your students have ever in their lives witnessed such
      "douchebaggery" as this.

      {Mis-ter God's-Gift to Alllllllllllll Runnnnn-ning Wo-men!}
